Ubisoft Shutting Down Online Services of 15 Games

Ubisoft Ubisoft

Ubisoft has created tons of amazing games in the past. Many fans, including myself, still install and enjoy them for nostalgia's sake. Ubisoft’s latest decision might not change that, but it can hinder a returning player’s experience.

Ubisoft announced recently that 15 of its games will lose support for online services on September 1. It means you can no longer play multiplayer, use online features, or link Ubisoft accounts in-game. This doesn’t stop there. Players will also be unable to unlock and download UCL (Unlockable Content) and DLCs, even if you already purchased them.

Losing multiplayer is one thing, but not being able to use DLCs that you already bought doesn’t seem right. Ubisoft should release all of these DLCs for free and install them automatically on every copy.

Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 will also lose online support, though their remastered version won’t be affected. The most recent game here is Space Junkies , a multiplayer-only VR game released in 2019. The game is originally priced at $40, and those who bought it will no longer be able to enjoy it after three years.

We have mentioned all the games affected by Ubisoft's decision below:

  • Anno 2070 (PC)
  • Assassin's Creed 2 (PC, and PS3)
  • Assassin's Creed 3 (2012) (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U)
  • Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
  • Assassin's Creed Liberation HD (PC)
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations (PS3, Xbox 360)
  • Driver San Francisco (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
  • Far Cry 3 (2012) (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
  • Ghost Recon Future Soldier (PS3, Xbox 360)
  • Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (PC)
